Janet RooneySenior Lecturer

I contribute to externally funded CPD activity (the Educator in Practice course). I have a very wide network of clinical/professional contacts and use this to identify potential joint, profit-making activity. I was part of a team that conducted a survey of practice that resulted in 2 publications. I enjoy teaching UG students about research and how they might use their skills to enhance their academic writing/clinical practice. My Masters dissertation was a qualitative design used to explore the experiences of student physiotherapists who have dyslexia.
